More Resistance news now and not only is the franchise a AAA title on the PS3 but it soon could be on the PSP. Announced at Sony’s presser yesterday was ‘Resistance: Retribution’, a 3rd person action game being devloped by Sony’s Bend studio, set in, what looked like, the R:FoM (but set in Europe, looks like Paris from the logo) universe complete with British voiceover girl and everything.

It seems Sony likes to adapt their franchises for PSP and they seem to turn out quite well. If this is as good as the GOW PSP game was then it’ll be great.

More Resistance, I can’t wait!

Ted Price of Insomniac was talkng about Resistance 2 yesterday at Sony’s conference and how ovbiously it was the best thing ever (i’m paraphrasing). Not only that but there was some new gameplay footage shown showing Hale fighting a giant Chimera thing called a Leviathan. The footage looked sweet and shows how far the PS3 has come since it’s launch and of course Resistance 1.

Along with gameplay footage Price introduced a never before seen trailer featuring a new level. Chicago. This looked good too and showed the differing environments in the game.

I can’t wait for this game. The original was my favorite launch title and still remains in my collection to this day. I really want to see some online stuff demoed soon. Oh yeah, the new trailer is up on the PlayStation store right now!

Ratchet: Quest For Booty Confirmed! by Anthony Barlow

After weeks of knowing this game was coming it was finally confirmed today by Insomniac at Sony’s E3 press conference.

The game will continue where ‘Tools Of Destruction’ left off with you controlling Ratchet on a quest to help him find Clank. Although it seems you will play as Ratchet for the majority of the game Clank will also be playable at some point.

The game was compared to a “Hollywood blockbuster” as it includes all of the action and such but in a shorter game.

The game will be available on the PSN sometime soon for $14.99.

I personally can’t wait for this. After playing the last game i’m a huge Ratchet & Clank fan and this is a steal at £7.50!

Sony E3 Liveblog A Success – Hopefully More To Come by Anthony Barlow

Whoo XeNonX’s 1st Liveblog was not a failiure! I’d like to give thanks to all those who watched and to Ads for bailing me out of what would’ve been quite a boring hour and a half. It seemed to go down pretty well and was quite easy to set up so I’m thinking of doing it again for future events.

So for those who missed this riveting conversation about Sony’s presser you can see the transcription here.

I personally think it went quite well. I did try and get a few different people to participate but I think it was too short notice. I think it needs to be planned if there’s gonna be a next time (TGS Maybe?).

Great picture right?

Fallout 3 – Exclusive DLC For 360 & PC by Anthony Barlow

Sony are really having a bad E3 so far. FFXIII is no longer exclusive and now this. It was announced at Microsoft’s press conference yesterday that Bethesda’s highly anticipated RPG ‘Fallout 3’ was to have ‘exclusive’ downloadable content for the Xbox 360 & PC.

The DLC is said to be “substantial” but I wouldn’t loose hope just yet as it’s still unconfirmed if this deal features all ‘Fallout 3’ DLC or just certain exclusive packs. I do hope that this is the case because I hate that DLC gets to be exclusive. 1st GTA IV now this, Microsoft are trying to sabotage the competition by throwing their money at everyone. Not good for the industry if you ask me. Like I said it’s unconfirmed if the 360’s DLC will be exclusive with the PS3 getting it’s own, but here’s hoping it is. The whole thing seems similar to the DLC stuff for GTA which has yet to be talked about by anyone. I just can’t see companies turning down the chance to print money.

That Thing Y’know by Anthony Barlow

“That Thing” is the podcast I announced a few weeks back. Yeah it’s still coming i’m just trying to confirm all the details with my co-host(s) and help get a plan sorted about how we’re gonna go about it.

The interview is currently on hold as I have nothing to confirm it can go ahead (but it will, maybe not the 1st one but that interview will go ahead).

I seem to have created an air of mystery and intrigue (or maybe not) about the whole thing but I’m just posting to say that yes we still want to do it and we want to get it done next week after E3 so there’ll be loads to talk about.

Thanks for your patience, I know you’re all dying to listen to this.
